How many people suffer traumatic brain injuries per year?

Many injuries cause a tremendous amount of suffering, from an incredible amount of discomfort and pain to lifelong problems with reduced mobility. However, those which involve the brain are especially concerning. To make matters worse, it can be difficult to detect brain injuries and some people suffer for years without knowing that hitting their head caused a TBI. In Bozeman, and across all of Montana, it is pivotal for those with head injuries to look into their options, especially if someone's negligence caused the injury.

What is a survival action?

The anguish and stress that comes with seeing a loved injured in Bozeman is often compounded by the responsibility placed on you to care for him or her going forward. The expenses associated with such care may leave you with little choice but to seek compensation on his or her behalf from the party responsible for his or her injuries. Yet initiating such action may add further stress to your situation given that it is impossible to know what the future holds. What if, for example, your loved one dies before his or her case is resolved? 

Considering a settlement in your case

If and when you or someone in Bozeman that you care about is injured by a defective product, you may immediately assume that a large judgment is coming your way from the product's manufacturer. Many of those that we here at Cok Kinzler PLLP have worked with in the past who have suffered similar injuries share the same assumption. They quickly learned, however, that such cases are not always so cut-and-dry. 

Playgrounds and brain injuries

If you have children who are in school, you could have many concerns. For example, you might be worried about bullying or their performance in the classroom. However, there are other potential problems that parents should watch out for, such as the risk of brain injuries on the playground and elsewhere. Playground accidents are responsible for many of the brain injuries that children suffer, but there are other hazards they may come across in school and elsewhere, such as wet floors. As a parent, it can be very unsettling to find out that your child has suffered a brain injury, but you should not give up.
